These won’t stop. Many of them are making a billion+ dollars or very close to it. And many of the recent ones haven’t even been very good imho. Combined, Spidey Far From Home, Avengers Endgame, and Captain Marvel made 5 billion bones. No way are they going to phase out. It’s funny because for the last ten years or so, plenty of people have been saying (here too) that “there are too many superhero movies” and “audiences will grow bored”. Then, of course, there’s the real money they make with the toys and other merchandise.

In perspective, it’s been almost exactly 21 years since Blade was released, 19 years since X-Men part 1, and 17 years since Spider-Man 1. That’s a very long time ago yet they’re making more money than ever.

Another thing is that the last good Spidey film that wasn’t created by the MCU was way back in 2004.

Maguire was the best Spiderman, imo. I never thought they could find an actor more unlikable than Andrew Garfield to play the role but boy did I underestimated Hollywood again.

Every year, there's a new crop of kids going to theaters to see these blockbusters.  Overall, the superhero genre is far from slowing down.

It will be very interesting to see what Disney/Marvel does with X-Men and Fantastic 4.  If they screw them up, just like 20th Century Fox did, oh boy....look out....

Looks like they announced 3 more shows coming to Disney+ :
Moon Knight, Ms. Marvel (the 21st century teenage girl version), and She-Hulk

I can’t imagine Moon Knight getting the ultra violence and lunacy that he needs to be represented accurately. Cool character though.

She-Hulk could go either way. The character’s sense of humor does fit in line with the lighter touch that the MCU has been trying lately. She’s better as a team player though imho so hopefully she’ll mosey on over to the films...and likely/eventually, the Avengers roster.

I totally don’t care about the Ms. Marvel one. They could’ve gone with all sorts of more established, more interesting characters than her but I’m thinking Disney has their agenda.

Because until just recently when Disney bought out Fox, Longshot would’ve been grouped with the X-Men characters. Unusuable until the very recent acquisition. The MCU probably would want to intro the bigger X-Men characters like Wolverine, Magneto, etc. before anyone like Longshot.

That second batch of X-Men movies had a lot of problems and she was one of the biggest issues I had. Just really flat acting that didn’t seem like Mystique at any point.

The best Mystique depiction was in X2 by Stamos.

After the train wreck that was X-Men 3, I quit.  The new cast didn’t interest me one bit.

Fassbender does as great a job as a younger Magneto.

I’d grade all the X-movies like this...

X1: B-
X2: A-
X3: F

First Class: C+ (the Fassbender parts early on are quality)
Days of Future Past: B
Apocalypse: F
Dark Phoenix: (skipped because I thought it’d be total garbage)

Of the main cast, Lawrence was easily the worst in both groups and Jackman or Stewart was possibly the best.
